Many of you have read my journal and know my little latest dilemma but I thought many of you could add your experiences to this. Today I went to a pain specialist. I explained to him that currently I am being prescribed 120 percocets per month for both chronic back pain from degenerative disc disease and endometriosis. The medication is a miracle in my life because I can function well while I take it with no side affects. I have done this for about a year. My primary dr referred me to a pain specialist, I think in an attempt to get me off of narcotics and put the liability if they are prescribed onto a pain specialist. So, today I went. He wants me to have a procedure called IDET which sort of is like extreme heat placed directly via needle into the disc to toughen it and desensitize it. I asked this dr if I should get my percocet from him in the meantime and he said "no, have your primary dr continue to write those scripts" So when I put a call into their office and explained the whole pain specialist appointment, I was told that he should write the script. Now I am sitting here waiting for this to be resolved. It is so illogical to me that my primary dr wanted to give me a new drug(neurontin)which has been linked to suicides and other problems but doesnt want to give me something that I have taken for over a year that works for me. Anyone else having issues getting their pain medications filled?
